Open Doctoral Candidate Positions
MIRELAI is looking for talented and motivated Doctoral Candidates (DCs) with the skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to help the network make significant research breakthroughs. MIRELAI targets to address key strategic challenges related to the microelectronics industry implemented in a Doctoral Networks-Industrial Doctorate training project.
The early-stage researchers will be part of a strong expert network in the domain formed by industry and academia and through interactions and collaborations will work towards joint project objectives. Shared hosting and joint supervision by the industry and academia of each of the 13 doctoral candidates ensures optimal knowledge transfer. DCs will enrol in PhD degree programmes and be employed for 36 months in a network composed of 14 beneficiaries and 7 associated partners from 7 European countries.
What we offer
The project offers the Doctoral Candidates a prestigious three-year MSCA PhD programme along the electronics system value chain. The successful candidates will benefit from an international scientific network of academic and industrial partners with research and training excellence in microelectronics reliability.
Specific Eligibility Criteria on the Horizon Europe: Marie Skłodowska-Curie (MSCA) programme apply, including the mobility rule and PhD rules. Applicants of any nationality are welcome.
MSCA mobility rule: researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the recruitment date.
PhD rule: Supported researchers must be doctoral candidates, i.e. not already in possession of a doctoral degree at the date of the recruitment.
Additionally, PhD applicants must fulfil the local requirements of the recruiting institutions listed in the project descriptions below.
The monthly support and benefits
The PhD candidate will receive an attractive salary in accordance with the MSCA regulations. The financial package will include: 1) Living allowance of €3,400 (country correction coefficient applies), 2) Mobility allowance of €600, 3) Family allowance (€660), if applicable. The exact (net) salary will be confirmed upon appointment and is dependent on local tax, social and health insurance regulations and the country correction factor.
- Our selection procedure for PhD position is open, transparent, merit-based and in line with the principles set out in the European Charter for Researchers and Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers
- The application dossier needs to be submitted as a single PDF file to the Main Supervisor mentioned in the PhD advertisement. Please indicate: ‘MIRELAI: PhD position 0x – your name‘
